Pete’s Muesli Enhancer

My three men eat a lot of cereal.

They all breakfast on large bowls of Weetbix – Small Man has brown sugar on his, while Pete and Big Boy add muesli to theirs.

Pete doesn’t make his own muesli from scratch, but he does “enhance” it with a whole swag of add-ins.  He uses Uncle Toby’s Natural Style Muesli as his base – he’s very happy with this brand, as the oats are soft, there’s a little bran included, and it’s actually cheaper than buying straight rolled oats.

To every one kilo packet, he adds:

  • 200g rolled spelt
  • 100g whole almonds, halved lengthwise
  • 50g roasted peeled hazelnuts, halved
  • 50g pepitas
  • 100g sunflower kernels
  • 50g dried blueberries
  • 100g dried figs, cut into small pieces
  • 100g dried cranberries
  • 50g sultanas

It makes for a very luxurious breakfast indeed.  Do you make your own muesli mix?  We’d love to know what you put in yours!
